Great brunch, although it’s a fairly limited menu. Great staff. It’s a really fun place, I could’ve stayed there for a few hours to play video games, pool and bowl.

Very limited menu. If you're going don't expect a good meal. Basically it's just a place to eat appetizers and drink. Don't expect to socialize with your group either the music was way too loud for us to all hear each other.

Out of 6 meals 3 of them were ok and the other 3 were no good, The service was bad! My mom's Birthday and server looked at me like I didn't care, so no dessert was even offered. The lady at the front door was helpful with the questions I had.

Went there to celebrate our daughter’s 21 birthday. Great atmosphere. The service was pretty slow even though the place was well less than half full. The chicken wing appetizer was probably 8 wing pieces about the size of a Cornish game hen. The food overall was 3.5 out of 5.

First off when me and my party of 6 get there it was all of our 1st time no host to show us around or anything we had to find out where everything was at on our own. Second I decided to go to the restroom filthy I couldn’t even use the restroom it stink tissue on the floor toilets had black stuff on it and worse thing of it all no soap . 3 rd our drinks and food came the drink was so water down due to them over doing the ice it was terrible for 36 dollars and it was a drink for 4 it was just me and my husband drinking it tho and we didn’t get a buzz at all and it didn’t taste good taste water down said something to one of the waiter he had an nasty attitude I just said forget it . Then we go to do karaoke it took us 15 min just to hook our phones up smh lady poorly explain it to us . And it’s so hot in them rooms it doesn’t make you even wanna do karaoke no more after the 1st 30mins it was sooo hot . It’s a lot of work needs to be done and lots of training needed as an manger I could tell it’s a lot of work needed to be done and I won’t be back ! Thanks for ruining my 25th birthday I was so embarrassed had to apologize to my guest so no I won’t ever recommend anyone!

I enjoyed it. Only thing was I was with a group of four and I got to the restaurant first. They made me wait until everyone else got there which was annoying. Other than that, had a blast. Amanda was a great server!

We like the ambiance there and the food is usually good but this time it was pretty bad .
5 orders of burgers and they all came came out at different times with very cold fries .
Burgers were all very over cooked . Just not worth the money .

The biscuits were hard and cold. There was about 1.5oz of gravy on my biscuits and gravy breakfast. The avocado came our hard and inedible. When I got it replaced, it was ripe but half the portion they originally sent. My husbands meal had potatoes in it and they were cold. The Bloody Mary bar ingredients were difficult to enjoy with 4 inch sticks you could barely fit anything on. I understand why it was easy to snag a brunch reservation. Our server was great and tried to make everything right but you just can’t carry the kitchen.

I don’t think we’d go back with all the options in Detroit. It wasn’t horrible but we were so hopeful and expected much more. Disappointing.

The food was ... OK... NOT a large variety. NOT seasoned well. Cake was froze , hard, thick. I was NOT impressed. People didn't seem to be washing their hands when coming IN off the street and SERVE customers.

Really great food. I got the chicken and waffles and I 10/10 would recommend. Also, my boyfriend got a vanilla shake and it was delicious. We sat in the open seating section because we wanted to be near the action. Although we had a great time, the service could have been a little quicker. Overall, a fun spot with great food!

This is hard for me, because I absolutely love the atmosphere and food here!! The biggest problem is the service....its dreadfully slow. Waiting 15 minutes or more for a cocktail is absurd. We had a large party of 12 gals before we toured the city on the Handlebar peddle bike. There was an even larger bachelorette party right next to us as well. BOTH parties only had ONE waitress!! ONE!! Not one each...ONE for BOTH parties!! That was just ridiculous. At one point, I went to the 6 other people standing at the hostess podium and asked if it'd be better for us to simply go to the bar ourselves and get our own drinks.... I booked the reservation 2 months ago, as I'm sure the other party did as well, there was obviously NO planning by the Punch Bowl management to accommodate these parties. We have this brunch/peddlebar adventure every year, I may have to choose another brunch spot due to the terrible service yesterday :(

Dime Store had an hour plus wait so we saw Punch Bowl Social had a lot of availability on OpenTable for brunch....
It was pretty open and the hostess said pick wherever you want. We chose a seat on the patio
After 10 mins passed from a waiter saying he’d be right over, I went to the bar and got us a couple glasses of water.
The waiter passed by saying he’d be right there again and then went to the “Mgr” sitting at the bar asking them to give my table a different server as I was clearly agitated. I know this cause I walked up during the convo
The beverage Mgr never addressed me, apologized, offered to take a drink order, or anything to alleviate the now nearly 20 mins I’ve been there with no server. He sat back down at his computer and I waited another 5 mins before we got up and left. On the way out, I questioned his Mgmt of this situation and he told me he told the hostess to send me another wait staff .....what did I expect ??? Lol

I guess there is a reason the Dime Store has an hr wait and this place was 80 percent open .....
Next time I’ll wait
